We didn't actually have an official talk tonight. Instead, we spent most of our time on dreams. However, before (Part 1) and after (Part 2) the dream work, Pierre give little mini-talks on a couple of subjects. Part 1 is answering a question Regina posed about the use of the term, 'metaphysics' by Proclus in his Theology of Plato, and Part 2 is homework for next week's talk.
Regina had asked Pierre about the use of some Aristotelian terms (such as metaphysics by Proclus. Pierre explains how to be careful with their use, since Aristotle was opposed to Plato.
Questions to prepare for next week:
Later, regarding part 2, Pierre asked Barbara to send out the following to her email list for us to reflect on until next week:
If there is a parallel between the Platonic tradition and Philosophical Midwifery (PMW), then they both may be part of the same tradition or both philosophical without sharing the same tradition. Or, PMW may be a mode of psychotherapy and not be classed among philosophical systems, or should stand alone independent of the Platonic tradition and psychology..
